Wednesday Hero

Sir Nicholas George
Winton

Sir Nicholas George Winton
 104 years old from Hampstead, London 

 Wednesday Hero was started to honor the men and women of the United States military, but this week we're doing something a little different. Sir Nicholas George Winton is a British humanitarian who will turn 105 this May. On the eve of WWII, Winston was instrumental in the rescue of 669 children, mostly Jewish, from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. Sadly, many of the children he saved lost their parents in concentration camps.

 These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.
